BLADE RUNNER: NOW MORE DIGITAL

Movie NewsRuss FischerComment

 See what I get for not checking daily on Joanna Cassidy's website? A number of sites (1, 2) are reporting on Blade Runner reshoots, based on a post at said location. Specifically: Joanna has just finished re-shooting her scenes from the original BLADE RUNNER movie. Joanna is wearing her original outfit (which she kept over from the first production). These new scenes will be part of the upcoming special BLADE RUNNER DVD re-release. Check back for more details.

Apprarently, the idea is that the new footage will be cut into little pieces and composited in over some of the mistakes that plagued Cassidy's scene in which Zhora is chased by Dekard, before being gunned down in a historic example of terrible wig-dom. So her footwear and bullet wounds might now be consistent throughout the scene, which might even get a radically new edit. Wonder if the original stuntman was brought in to jump through a new window, as well?

We'll be hearing more about this, no doubt, if other actors are/have been brought in to shoot new/additional work for the film's final cut.
